About Employee Involvement Groups

  • Focus on a common human characteristic such as race, ethnicity, generation, ability, gender, and sexual orientation.
  • Help promote an inclusive environment that encourages involvement and builds stronger connections among individuals who may have felt excluded in the past.
  • Open to all employees who want to support the goals of the EIG. That means even if you do not personally identify with the common characteristic of an EIG, you may join as an ally – a critical role in cultivating learning and understanding of underrepresented areas.

What do EIG members do?

Members of the EIGS express their perspectives/experiences to build cultural awareness, respect, and inclusiveness within the College. They are involved in networking, social gatherings, and opportunities to identify barriers within the workplace. For more information, connect with the chair contacts listed below.
